Using the Ricoh Theta Z1 to Add People to Matterport 3D Tour9772

Matterport 3D Tour by We Get Around Atlanta Chief Photographer Dan Smigrod | More about my Art Project

Hi All,

Are you using a Ricoh Theta Z1 and Matterport Pro2 3D Camera to scan a space?

I could use your help ...

I may have the opportunity to scan a space to add people like I have done before here, here,
and here.

What I am wondering is if I should:

1. Scan the entire space first with a Matterport Pro 3D Camera
2. Add people using the Ricoh Theta Z1


1. Any reason that I could not do the two-step workflow above?
2. Quality of the Ricoh Theta Z1 shots added to the Matterport 3D Tour?

The objectives of using the Ricoh Theta Z1 would be:

1. Speed up Capture of the people shots
2. The more efficient I am with the people; the more times they can appear in the tour
2. Avoid stitching errors if people move (multiple people in each 360ยบ)

Additional thoughts?

I am getting one in a few days for a price slightly lower than Ricoh RRP. It is US$954 with a current exchange rate. You can buy it here

May be it is not worth for customers outside of Australia as I do not think they will ship it for free worldwide.

However comparing to $2200 AUD on ebay from Japan it is much better at $1349 AUD. Almost half of it :-)

It shows as pre-order but I got a call from them a few days ago asking to pay the balance. I have just paid it and they are going to ship it to me today.
